Conrad Murray jury selected #MJ - who are they?

The 7 men and 5 women chosen to decide the fate of Dr Conrad Murray, who's accused of killing Michael Jackson, are all middle-aged and several acknowledge that they are fans Michael Jackson. The racial breakdown reflects the Los Angeles community - half are white (6 jurors), there are 5 hispanic/latinos and one black member of the panel. Some say they follow celebrity news on the internet and the tv. A 43-year old woman on the panel is British-born and a new US citizen. In the jury questionnaire she said she viewed jury service as a "privilege" and her "civil duty." Dr Murray denies the charge of involuntary manslaughter.
